Understanding Your Metabolism, IT Salaries Take a Hit, and Seven Principles of Successful Managers Put that one in here in case it is one of the management at my old company reading this daily – figure they could read during their down time instead of this. A good quote from there, “Show Consistent Kindness – Good managers don’t throw their weight around or rely on intimidation to get results.” What a concept! They really need to read that whole article. I see the old company’s entry in my log file almost daily & I feel like a police officer at an accident scene … “Move along people, there’s nothing to see here! Move along!” Wanted to give them something to see – there is a link now just for them. (It is also a good article for any employee!)
On that note – love the new job. Love it. A very positive work environment on every level, from the CEO down to the summer intern who set up my PC. Quiet work environment. It is emphasized in the employee manual that it is important that we all “play nice” – say hi to each other, be courteous. No screensavers of naked women or pictures of Victoria Secret models. Conservative casual dress among the developers – I would not have to worry about walking a client through the design team or IT team room. No funky cardboard cut-outs all over of Star Wars characters or Austin Powers. I hop out of bed in the morning & look forward to coming to work. I forgot a long time ago what that felt like! Love it, love it, love it.
